Lord God, no matter how far or how fast I run, there are two entities that I cannot escape; you and me.
My sins are ever before me and so is your grace. My shortcomings are always with me and so is your mercy. My past disobedience is always a part of me and so is your forginess.
I cannot escape who I am or what I was because every time I look in the mirror, my reality is staring me in the face. Every hurt, every scar, every wrong decision and every heartache is looking back at me. When I see what I have become, I wonder who you can love me as much as you do.
I am so thankful that when you look at me, you see me as your child forever. When you look at me, you see me as completely and totally forgiven. When you look at me, you see me as perfect. When you see me, you see me as righteous as you are because the blood of Jesus has covered all of my sins and the cross is the proof of these truths.
Lord, sometimes I want to run away from who I am, but I should never want to run away from who you see me as and I can never run away from you. Thank you Lord God! In Jesus name, I pray. Amen.
